Lynn University’s Student Symposium was launched several years ago to celebrate student research accomplishments at Lynn. The event honors the finest of our students' work, and offers students an opportunity to have a unique and valuable academic experience. While this event began in the College of Arts and Sciences, it is now offered university-wide.

Awards are presented in two categories:

  • Oral presentation: a brief conference-style talk that includes a digital visual aid
  • Research poster: an academic poster presentation of original research
